The studies collected in this volume contribute to shedding light on the
multi-faceted complexity and stratification of identity within the context
of corporate communication, by definition characterized by the interplay
and intersection among genres, discursive practices and communicative
events involving both individual and collective actors. The texts
investigated include openly promotional genres specifically aimed at
constructing and promoting a company's image in the marketplace, such as
those used in sponsorship and advertising, as well as organizational genres
which in spite of their primarily operational purpose also incorporate cues
aimed at the planned self-representation of the enterprise. The arguments
presented in the various chapters and the research results supporting them
bring evidence to the crucial role discourse plays in the construction of
corporate identity at all levels.
